NCPA Announces Resignation of Kathleen Jaeger as CEO; Appoints Douglas Hoey as CEO

ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) announced today that Kathleen Jaeger has resigned as Executive Vice President and CEO to pursue other opportunities. NCPA's Executive Committee has appointed B. Douglas Hoey, RPh, MBA as Executive Vice President and CEO, effective immediately.


"We thank Kathleen for her leadership during her tenure with our association," said NCPA President Robert Greenwood, RPh and Waterloo, Iowa pharmacy owner. "She brought many talents and ideas to NCPA. We wish Kathleen all the best in her future endeavors."

"I appreciated the opportunity to work with the NCPA Executive Committee and its staff. In the end, we agreed that we wanted to take the association in different directions," Jaeger stated.  "I wish NCPA well as it works on behalf of the nation's dedicated community pharmacists and their patients."

In selecting Hoey as its chief executive, NCPA tapped a registered pharmacist and the son of an independent pharmacist in Bartlesville, Okla., who previously was the association's Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. Hoey served as NCPA's Acting Executive Vice President and CEO for most of 2010, giving NCPA members and partners a preview of his leadership style and vision.

"We're excited about Doug's leadership of NCPA and what can be accomplished under his direction," Greenwood said. "He grew up working in a community pharmacy, has served patients as a pharmacist and has dedicated his career to advancing the ability of community pharmacists to effectively care for their patients."

"Doug has demonstrated his commitment to NCPA's membership and his capabilities as an effective leader time and again," added Donnie Calhoun, RPh, Chairman of NCPA's Executive Committee and owner of Golden Springs Pharmacy in Anniston, Ala. "He has the vision, knowledge and experience to take NCPA to even greater heights in service of its member pharmacists and their patients."

"I am excited and honored to lead this outstanding organization. And I am humbled by the trust that NCPA's Executive Committee has placed in me," Hoey said. "Community pharmacists play a critical, and growing, role in today's health care system. They provide trusted medication counseling, adherence services, patient care and other cost-saving services to millions of Americans.

"NCPA's efforts have a real impact on the ability of community pharmacists to continue serving their patients," Hoey added. "For example, we worked for a court injunction of the AMP rule, preserving Medicaid patients' access to their pharmacists while saving pharmacies from billions of dollars in devastating cuts. And the enactment of 'prompt pay' legislation helped ensure that pharmacies receive timely reimbursement from Medicare Part D plans for their services. At the same time, local pharmacists still face many pressing challenges in both the government and business sectors. These issues wait for no one – not any of us. So I look forward to getting started right away. My litmus test for NCPA's initiatives and programs will be simple: How do they advance the ability of community pharmacists to care for their patients?"

Prior to joining NCPA's staff, Hoey spent 14 years working in community pharmacies that provided home infusion, long-term care consulting, compounding, and full-line durable medical equipment (DME) services. In 2005, he became NCPA's first Chief Operating Officer (COO) reporting directly to then-CEO Bruce T. Roberts, RPh, and was responsible for overseeing NCPA's Government Affairs, Management Institute, Communications, and Strategic Initiatives departments.

Before his service as COO, Hoey led NCPA's Management Institute and helped double its student membership and initiate new programs such as the Good Neighbor Pharmacy Pruitt-Schutte Business Plan Competition

Hoey is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center College of Pharmacy and has an MBA from Oklahoma City University.
